Overview

It’s time to get creative! Grab your blocks and join me in this 35 minute power yoga class for strength, balance and flexibility. We’re going to use the blocks to put a spin on traditional yoga poses and transitions. Blocks are an amazing way to evolve and progress your practice.

This is an intermediate practice and similar to iron yoga as the blocks can be used to add weight to your poses. Rest assured we’ll have a nice cooldown stretch at the end. Remember, sometimes the real challenge is mental just as much as it is physical! You can do it!!

    I am working back and pulling on my weight lifting routine today. This was in my opinion the best way to go into a heavy weight training session. Love you Kassandra

    Found it hard with the blocks and my slightly arthritic hands. Will try it again though.

  5. Susanna Buckley

    Really enjoyed the class and the challenge. Found it trickier to balance and do the high lunge, warrior 3 and side twist on the left side. Interesting to feel the difference between that and my right side. Thank you x

  45. Theresa Barger

    I enjoy all your classes, and since starting daily yoga thanks to your 10-minute morning yoga program, I’ve been practicing yoga nearly every day. This class is hard, but each time I do it, I see myself improving on my balance. I’d love classes to strengthen the spine and improve balance. I so appreciate that you explain the positions. That has made all the difference for me.

  46. Karrie George

    Wow, that was challenging! Especially the standing sequence. I enjoyed it a lot! Also I have to emphasize just how wonderful your style of teaching is. You always give the right amount of cues, your timing is perfect and your voice and way with words are so encouraging and calming.

    Wow! That was challenging!

    • Kassandra

      Well done on sticking with it

  89. Dagmar Brezinova

    This video also isn’t available for me to see. I only see the error message ‘sorry, the video player failed to load’. I’ve noticed this with quite a few videos now…

  90. Suzanne42

    I really liked these variations! Especially high lunge to Vira 3 to twist — that was so interesting, and really proud of myself that I didn’t fall out of them, lol. The block really helped! Thanks for always adding great new classes!

    • Kassandra

      Blocks are incredible for your practice

  91. PETER GRIFFITHS

    Thank you, this class was both challenging and rewarding. I find it difficult to have the blocks under my spine, it always feels very uncomfortable.

    • Kassandra

      Try a bolster instead, or pad your blocks with some blankets

  92. Tania Roberts

    I like rhe power yoga. More wiuld be good.

  93. Elke Schwalm

    I love this class, the mix of strenght, flexibility and block variations. Please, more of them – thanks so much, Kassandra ๐Ÿ™‚

  95. Amandine

    Thank you Kassandra for this super class ! Challenging just enough for a Sunday morning ! Just during the flow with the hands on the block, the plank was painful for rists, and aml the weight was on my rists, couldn’t shift it to the fingers. Do you know any exercise to correct this ? Also , i love the fact that we always have an easy variation at hand that work for us !

    • Kassandra

      Work through some of the tutorials and wrist warm up stretch videos

  96. Heather

    Thank you so much for doing this class. I too found that my right wrist was having some pain during the hands on the block plank transitions. Also the standing three transitions were a challenge for my balance. I guess I should be doing more balancing classes. Overall this class made me feel really good and the challenges were amazing. Thank you again.

  97. Elke Schwalm

    Ye,s please more of those classes. I just love the 30ish min power classes. Thanks so much, Kassandra ๐Ÿ™‚

  100. Brandi Jo Dial

    I really loved this one! But the boat pose is a challenging pose for me. Lol

    • Kassandra

      That’s not an easy pose for anyone

  101. PETER GRIFFITHS

    Love these sessions. More power yoga please.
